A few words about Vamos in Chania The semi mountainous village of Vamos is located on the foothills of the White Mountains (Lefka Ori), only 25km away from Chania and 35km away from Rethymnon. What makes Vamos a great holiday destination is the traditional architecture (mainly influenced by the Venetian period), its cobblestone little streets filled with blooming bougainvillea and its unique “kafeneions” (traditional cafés) where one can try the authentic local cuisine. As for daily trip options… magnificent beaches (the closest is only 7 km away), impressive gorges, hiking trails and bicycle routes await to be discovered!
